Baby left in car dies from the heat
Thu 26/07/2012 – 12:03

A six month old baby has died as a result of the heat. The baby girl’s father, a member of the armed forces, had forgotten the child in his car when he drove to work at the army barracks in the Brussels borough of Evere.

The child was fastened in a child seat. The baby was going to the crèche at the military base, but the father forgot his baby daughter in the car. The car has tinted windows preventing anybody from noticing the baby from the outside.

When the father went to the crèche to pick up his daughter after work he realised he had forgotten her in his car. He alerted the emergency services, but the baby had already died as a result of the heat.

Brussels police are investigating the matter. The father risks charges of involuntary manslaughter.
